Seeing Ghosts

Orchid lovers are searching for ghosts in Florida’s swamps. Summer is Ghost Orchid season, with spectral flowers betraying the locations of these strange, leafless air plants. Made famous by the bestselling book The Orchid Thief and acclaimed movie Adaptation, Ghost Orchids have a fanatic following. Southwest Florida’s News-Press has an article and two swampy videos showing a little of what people go through to see them in the wild. Since it’s only the beginning of the blooming season, expect more ghostly apparitions in coming months.
